After having the opportunity to live in Banff in 2015, I was hooked. I have been back 1-2 times per year ever since! I have been obsessed with finding beautiful places, amazing eats, and joyful activities! Now I’m here to share them with you!

Alyssa:Bow Falls is a great place to start! It is a short walk from the city center and the views are breathtaking.

Alyssa:This one typically requires a car but can be accessed by a short hike! It offers a great viewpoint for first time visitors.

Bow Lake
Alyssa:Bow Lake is one of my absolutely favourite stops! It’s a bit of a drive but it is worth every second.

Moraine Lake
Alyssa:The most stunning views you will find in the world. This is the number one place for any visitor to stop. It can be hard to access by car in the summer but they run a shuttle bus from Lake Louise. That is the best way to access the lake.

Park Distillery Restaurant and Bar
Alyssa:Looking for a bite to eat? This place first opened in 2016 and it was a hit! The food is great and the drinks are great. It is a bit on the pricier side but it is a great stop with a great atmosphere.
